Town Council Offices To Be Relocated

The Town Council meet on Monday 26th March.

A series of motions are catalogued and recorded in the draft minutes showing the minority Labour group to be opposed to the final motion that was carried by a mixture of Liberal Democrat, Independents, and Community Independent councillors. The agenda can be downloaded from LINK.

In essence, the Council, have voted to have the offices relocated to another site to protect the staff from possible asbestos contamination. Essential works to rectify issues with the flooring have been authorised up to £15,000. And a new sub-committee has been set up to look for opportunities to acquire more suitable premises and to investigate various land options to build a new Town Council Office with regard to the Town's growth agenda in the next 30 years.

On 5th March the new sub-committee was set up with cross-party representation and a budget of £2000.


As well as the usual opportunity for public questions and public filming of meetings from 7.30pm, the Council will be considering a report on the 2016 EU Directive known as General Data Protection Regulation which takes effect on 25th May 2018. This may involve the Town Council taking on additional expertise as the National Association of Local Councils recommends that a clash of interests with using existing staff is avoided.

  • Tithe Farm Primary School has submitted a petition to the Council for support to re-open the existing derelict outdoor pool.

  • A backlog of other meeting agendas are also due to be approved at Monday's meeting.
